CRC-Evans Pipeline International has released its newly developed Orbis™ Offshore Internal Welding System.
The company drew on its experience of creating an internally mechanised welding system for pipeline applications and paired that knowledge with CRA girth-welding experience.
CRC-Evans Pipeline International said it gained this experience in both spool base and offshore projects around the globe.
“Some of the challenges we faced included burn-through, lack of penetration, and oxidation, especially when depositing the critical root pass in a CRA pipeline weld,” said CRC-Evans Pipeline International.
“We improved upon our already advanced industry-leading welding technology, virtually eliminating these challenges.
“Additionally, applying the Orbis™ system’s internal clad pass capability with our existing P-625 girth-welding system will allow customers to utilise a higher-strength, lower-cost carbon steel consumable.”
CRC-Evans Pipeline International expects the new system will eventually allow companies to implement higher-strength carrier pipe in the design process.
